COLOMBO, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan stocks ended a tad firmer on Tuesday, while a block deal in Asiri Central Hospitals PLC boosted the turnover to a one-month high.

The Colombo Stock Exchange's main index edged up 0.08 percent or 4.28 points to close at 5,507.79. One stockbroker noted some foreign buying in blue chips, though retail investors remained on the sidelines.

The rupee closed steady at 128.70/75 to the dollar compared with Monday's close of 128.70/80 in dull trade, dealers said.

Analysts also said lower interest rates should attract more investors to the stock market from January. The central bank surprised the markets with a 25-basis point rate cut to support growth last week.

Asiri Central Hospitals PLC, which fell 1.6 percent to 250 rupees, and accounted for 70.6 percent of the day's turnover with 7.3 million shares changing hands in a block deal.

Total turnover was 2.59 billion Sri Lanka rupees ($20.13 million), its highest since Nov. 19. Foreign investors were net buyers of 140.1 million rupees worth of shares, extending the net foreign buying so far this year to 36.73 billion rupees.

($1 = 128.6500 Sri Lanka rupees)

A major deal on Asiri Central and few blue-chips helped to bolster activity after a relatively slow start. Indices managed to close in positive ground helped by gains on blue-chips such as Commercial Bank. It is worthwhile noting that John Keells Holdings is trading approximately at around the same price levels as it did during the peak of the All Share Price Index in February 2011. Conversely, the ASI has lost approximately 2,300 points to date since the peak.

ASI gained 4.28 points (0.08%) to close at 5,507.79, MPI gained 27.40 points (0.55%) to close at 5,039.62 and the S&P SL20 index gained 10.18 points (0.34%) to close at 3,019.62.Turnover was Rs. 2,587.6Mn.

Top contributors to turnover were Asiri Central with Rs. 1,825.8Mn, Commercial Bank with Rs. 186.9Mn and John Keells Holdings with Rs. 155.3Mn. Most active counters for the day were Access Engineering, Sampath Bank and HVA Foods.

Notable gainers for the day were Access Engineering up by 8.2% to close at Rs. 18.40, Hydro Power Free Lanka up by 2.9% to close at Rs. 7.00 and Pan Asia Bank up by 2.7% to close at Rs. 19.00. Notable losers for the day were Hemas Power down by 4.8% to close at Rs. 20.00, Asian Hotels & Properties down by 3.5% to close at Rs. 75.00 and Lanka IOC down by 3.4% to close at Rs. 20.00.

The Colombo bourse recovered some lost ground yesterday on the back of a transaction featuring a large parcel of Asiri Central Hospitals PLC (ASHA) with turnover exceeding two billion rupees.

The All Share Price Index closed at 5,507.79 points, 0.07 percent higher gaining 4.28 points while the Milanka Price Index of more liquid stocks closed 0.54 percent higher, up 27.40 points to 5,039.30.

The S&P SL20 closed at 3,019.62 points, gaining 0.34 percent or 10.18 points.

Turnover reached Rs. 2.58 billion on a volume of 35.3 million shares changing hands during the day.

Foreign purchases amounted to Rs. 477 million resulting in a net inflow of Rs. 140 million.

"The ASPI ended marginally higher amid strong gains in a few large caps. Turnover levels crossed the Rs. 2bn threshold mainly on the back of a large trade on ASHA, which accounted for over 70% of market turnover. The market also saw crossings on COMB, DIAL, and SAMP," John Keells Stockbrokers said.

In a stock exchange filing, Asiri Hospital Holdings PLC said it purchased 7,303,257 ASHA shares for a consideration of little more than Rs. 1.82 billion from Asiri Surgical Hospital PLC in order to consolidate its shareholding as part of the Asiri group restructuring process.

Asiri Hospital Holdings now holds an 88.48 percent stake in ASHA, which was 55.78 percent prior to the deal.

Hikkaduwa Beach Resort was the biggest gainer yesterday, up 15.49 percent closing at Rs. 25.20.

Kuruwita Textiles Mills closed 12.78 percent lower at Rs. 19.90 to be the biggest loser of the day.
